I'm actually kind of excited for this. It's been years since I've played a flight Sim game.

I used to love playing Flight and train simulators. So much fun back in the day.

The last flight sim game I owned was ms flight sim 1.0.

Does that make me old?

i'm not sure what version my uncle was using but i thought it looked better that, maybe 2.0?

the only flight simulator i ever played was chuck yeager's, although i didn't play much.

we had a cga monitor and never got an ega one. iirc we had a 386/25 or something like that, and made a jump to a 486dx2 66 which maybe had an svga? i remember one christmas getting a sound blaster card for it and police quest 3. and that's when gaming got really awesome on the compy for me

Was shocked to see this thread.. thought Microsoft abandoned this long ago. Personally switched to X-Plane 11 but will check this out.

I still have a 5.25 floppy copy of Yeager for the Apple II e that my dad bought and I played a bunch. Still not worth anything too.

i just put in storage 3 boxes full of games (mostly sierra) - which i can rationalize out as, well, it wasn't that much $ if i consider it just a part of the other bullshit i stored (this logic fails if you look at all the bullshit together, value it in dollars, and value it against the cost to store it a year...)

so i'm storying my police quest and my turbografx-16 etc etc, which after a year or two, is like yeah, could just sell all that now and buy it in the future if/when i want it again...

but this is MY genesis and MY copy of quest for glory 2, etc... so in to storage they went!

Plus the Mod community has some crazy texture packs for previous ones that bring the graphics up quite a few notches. Sure the PC version will get some boosts from the mod community too.

this is no joke too... you can actually log training hours..

https://www.x-plane.com/pro/certified/

I'm pretty old school where I use the simulation but wouldn't want it to count towards my own seat time.. meanwhile [MENTION=16]PANDA[/MENTION] is living my dream and actually logging hours in the air.
Certification requires not only that the user have the certified X-Plane software, but also certified hardware (cockpit and flight controls) available through companies like Precision Flight Controls and Fidelity. This is because flight training systems can only be certified as a complete package (a software and hardware combination). The certified software is available for $500 to $1,000 per copy from PFC and Fidelity and the hardware runs from $5,000 to $500,000.
Well knowing the real costs this would only be worthwhile for a flight school IMO. That kinda money can buy alot of real flying time for a student.

Gonna have to build a new computer for this. As well as purchase a yoke and pedal set. I was surprised when M$ axed FSX. I thought it was like the best selling computer game/simulation of all time.
